The 26th Annual Garden Fair Weekend


Get ready for over 100 vendors selling flowers, antiques, and art, to descend on our beautiful 155-acre grounds! Our popular Fountain Garden will be transformed into a food court, including beer and wine from Prairie Street Brewing. Live entertainment will be provided throughout the entire weekend, and there will be plenty of room to sit and relax between shopping.

Tickets are just $8 a person and free for Klehm members and kids 12 and younger. Bring the whole family…but make sure to leave room in the car for all of your great finds!
